24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
The Golden State Warriors made history on Wednesday night as they became the first team in NBA history to win 73 games in a season. The defending champions surpassed the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls legendary 72-10 season and have now completed the greatest season in NBA history.
With Oracle Arena buzzing hours before the game, soon-to-be back-to-back MVP, Steph Curry, went off for five 3-pointers in the first quarter putting the Dubs in control. Curry went onto hit his 400th 3-pointer of the season and finished the game with 46 points.
An argument can be made that this the greatest basketball team in NBA history, but the playoffs will determine that. Check out the highlights of their rout of the Memphis Grizzlies below.
